Captain Cleanoff - RisingTerror (CD Review)

Ben  (Vocals)
Rohan (Guitar)

Murray (Drums)

Aussie grind band formed around 2009.

So 15 songs that go "Arrrrrrggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!" many dont make it to one minute in length, its fast as fuck and echoes back to the early days of grindcore.

But then comes the last track 'Threads' almost 5 minutes long, and its feedback/grunge intro leads into a sludgy/crust piece that is very well done and makes me wonder what if this whole album was like that with just a few of those 30 second blasts, then this could have been a very different kind of monster and may open them up to a wider audience.

Still all in all, as grind goes this is very well produced and avoids the pitfalls that many in this genre fall into.

Rating 7/10
For Fans Of: Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, Terrorizer
